, not only virginia but also florida in the southeast to be competitive in this race tonight, but that is not enough. as we move to the midwest he's going to have po pick off one of the key states in barack obama's fire wall, either ohio or wisconsin because you see what happens right there, if the president gets both ohio and wisconsin he only five votes away from an electoral lock. >> well, this is the difficult route that br has. he has to take the atlantic coasts sta s states and move i into the midwest and start picking off midwestern states. early in the night if he sees trouble in those, it's going to be a very difficult night for mitt romney. he has to win those three atlantic coast states. >> if he doesn't, if the president wins any one if we go back to the what if board in the middle. any one of these in play where he's ahead or tied he has 270 electoral votes. >> let's head off to richmond, virginia, with amy klobuchar robach. i know you're at a dnc headquarters. >> reporter: i'm wearing purple. it was completely coincidental but very appropriate because this is a
we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, voting rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battleground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida
beating romney by 11 binders. >> florida tonight remains too close to call. so where's the good news, you say? here it is. the election was decided without them. >> you don't listen to anything i say! i have been bringing you the truth! hot and hard now for seven years. how do you repay me? four more years of hope and change! >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in new york. president obama crossed the finish line. now he faces the same entrenched political opposition and little time before very big deadlines. joining me now, chuck todd, host of "the daily rundown" and matt map wizard. the president said during the campaign he would veto legislate that tried to avoid or kick this crisis down the road by simply extending the bush tax cuts for rich people. does he still insist he will veto any such plan? >> well, don't forget he's always -- harry reid's the pocket veto. the democrat senate, the pocket veto, why he hasn't had to veto anything if something can't get through the senate, it's not going to debt to him, number one. look, i think the white house was pleasantly surprised and open
very weak performances among other whites. look at those, florida and virginia where he's right in there punching till the very end winning under 40 -- well under 40% of white voters and still in a position to compete for them and just enough of those white working class voters in the midwest. >> as cokie roberts and jon karl, what do you think this says about who we are tonight. >> i think we should take a minute as george was saying to reflect on this story. i mean, this is a remarkable american story, the story of barack obama and what he -- what he represents personally, but also there's the changing america that has put him in this place and i think that that's why people get so excited about him because they recognize themselves in him in a way that they've never recognized themselves in a leader before, because it was never there before. now his tweet "we're all in this together" is something he really needs to deliver on, because we have to come out of this election being much more unified than the way we went into the election and that's going to be very -- >> another r
in sxiez allows democrats to overcome very weak performances. you look at florida and virginia where he's right in there punching, he's winning well under 40% of white voters and still in a position to fight for them. >> what is it this really says about who we are tonight. >> i think we should take a minute as george said to reflect on this story. i mean this is remarkable american story. and what he, what rerepresents personally but also the changing america that has put him in this place. i think that that's why people get so excited about it because they recognize themselves in him in a way they never recognized themselves in any leader before because it was never there before. now his tweet, we are all in this together is something he really needs to deliver on because we have to come out of this election being much more unified than the way we've gone into the election. >> there's another reason why this is historic in addition to the obvious one, this is a president who had running for re-election with with high unemployment, a low approval rating for much of this year, and a

night and yet florida still isn't red or blue. election officials in miami-dade county finished counting absentee ballots today and have 2,800 provisional ballots left to process. the election supervisor says they should be done counting by tomorrow afternoon with 97% of the state's vote in president obama leads by 47,000 votes. could puerto rico become the 51st state? residents voted on the island's status as a commonwealth tuesday. and for the first time a majority said they favored statehood. it is a nonbinding referendum, but it compels congress to make a decision about it. as a commonwealth residents are subject to u.s. laws but don't have to pay some federal taxes. and you won't have to watch the news for your next dose of vice president joe biden. he's going to be on next week's episode of "parks and recreation" playing himself when amy's character visits the white house. her character has a huge crush on the vice president once saying her ideal man would have "the brains of george clooney and the body of joe biden." so joe biden apparently quite a few fans including amy's charact
the president's trip. allen west keeps up the fight in flo florida. and new jersey gets some love from the vp. after two recounts and two hearings, patrick murphy remains the unofficial winner in the contest for florida's 18th congressional district. murphy's lead is just outside the 0.5 that would trigger a recount. they continued to count ballots after a noon deadline passed. murphy's campaign declared itself the winner based on the deadline past while west's campaign showed no sign of conceding. vice president joe biden toured storm damaged new jersey yesterday reassuring residents the federal government won't forget about them. biden spent his summers at the jersey shore as a boy and had this to say. >> so as the president is up here with the governor, we're not going anywhere, governor. we're not going anywhere, and you have a homeboy in the deal who gets it. >> and speaking of the garden state, new jersey governor chris christie stopped by "saturday night live" this weekend to talk hurricane recovery in his famous fashion fleece. >> i'd like to thank the red cross and first responders.
, florida, where they had the republican convention, to charlotte, fort bragg, back to charlotte, washington. that is 26 cd's. [laughter] but i have this image of lyndon johnson spinning in his grave at the idea that there is the president of the united states that has minimal interaction of congress, especially some of his own party. republicansorget and tea party people. forget them. just in his own party, wander around the hill, as all of you do all the time, and ask democratic members of congress, how much personal interaction do you have with the president? i hate giving political credit for anything, but they have that piece back in may that pointed out that the president, as of may, had not had a single conversation this year with the their kent conrad, chairman of the senate budget committee, where tom harkin, phone or in person, this year. now, you could talk about the party obstructionist, this and that, but if you are not talking to keep people in your own party. i checked with the unofficial historian of the contemporary presidency. the president played golf 104 times. the know h
record. on election night he tried to recreate florida 2000 on fox news by insisting that the network fox was wrong to in calling the election for president obama. the number crunchers said, no, you are wrong. he made a fool of himself. still today he insists he is right. i would hope that nobody would give that guy a dollar to spend in any future election. i think his career in politics should be over. not that i feel strongly about this, but he also has this enormous conflict of interest. he is getting all of these people's money, spending it for mitt romney, then he is on fox news as a supposedly independent political commentator and is writing a column for "the wall street journal." there are so many conflicts there is a pleasure mind. host: and on the lecture circuit. guest: which, by the way, i am on that too. he has all kinds of things. his losing record is what points out that his time in american politics has come and gone. host: what is next for the political parties and the president? our guest is bill press. he concludes with these words -- there is a boundary to what luster a

. texas has a rate of 25.5% uninsured. georgia, 22%. louisiana, 22%. florida, 21%. this is a fifth of the public here doesn't have health insurance. so i guess in terms of how this plays out in the state house, i wonder if governors hold on to their seats once they reject something that would have a considerable human benefit. >> it will have a huge human benefit. it's not just the people who get health insurance. you know, there are hospitals in these states. today when people have no health insurance, they show up at the hospital and the hospitals have to treat them. and that cost at the hospital will bare it and pass it on to everyone else in the community. hospitals are looking at this and saying this is money that could help stabilize our finances so we don't have to charge everybody else so much money. i wouldn't be surprised if over the next few months, as the election is now passed, you hear more and more from hospitals if places like texas and oklahoma knocking on the door of the legislature saying, hey, what are you guys doing? this is a great deal for us. why are you tur
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
, terry branstad, said this. quote, i don't think it's helpful. florida senator marco rubio said, quote, well, senator marco rubio according to journalists, quote, distanced himself. kelly ayotte weighed in on "andrea mitchell reports" today. >> i listened to the comments. i don't know what the context fully was. i don't agree with the comments. we have big challenges that need to be resolved as you know. >> so you're not comfortable with what you heard him say. >> no, i don't know the full context of them, but i don't agree with the comments. >> you know, nobody sounded quite as annoyed with mitt romney in these comments as louisiana governor bobby jindal asked about the romney comments yesterday at the republican governors association conference. >> no, look, i think that's absolutely wrong. two points on that. one, we have got to stop dividing the american voters. we need to go after 100% of the votes, not 53%. i absolutely reject that notion, that description. i think that's absolutely wrong. that is not -- i don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going
republican star florida senator marco rubio making a trip to iowa. what he had to say about rumors about a run for president in 2016. >> i think what happened is there are those who made promises to them. we have more government and a bigger government program that does this. if we tax one people more to pay for another group of people maybe that's the solution to the problems. here's the truth. big government doesn't help the people we are trying to help, it rurts them. martha: there are folks already camping out to be the first ones in the store for black friday. people are pitching tents. they have their electric and camping gears. they have all the comfort of home. >> we have most of the comforts of home. >> our family when they get done eating they will bring over food, we'll set a table up and we'll eat. martha: i can't figure it out. in search of a bargain they are on black friday. i wonder what it is they really -- >> there is a thing called the internet. a cease-fire thing between israel and hamas is close according to egyptian negotiators. that could allow a huge influx of weap
should know. republican senator marco rubio from florida raised a lot of eyebrows with a weekdend visit to iowa. the official reason for visit? governor terry branstad's bifrtd day speech? they thought his speech sounded like a campaign style speech fueling speculation about his future. well, how you wind down from a presidential race? tmz reports governor romney and his wife took in a showing of "breaking down part 2" over the weekend at a theater in california near his home. romney admitted he's a fan of the "twilight" series. >>> a high profile appearance this weekend by new jersey governor chris christie on "saturday night live." he donned his familiar fleece jacket he's been wearing so often. >> i'd like to give a special thanks to my lovely wife who put up with a husband who smelled like a wet fleece for the past three weeks. >> you've been wearing that a lot. >> it's basically fused to my skin at this point. i'm going to die in this fleece. >> he should totally host the show he did a great job. time for "news nation" gut check. more retailers are looking to get a jump on the holi

the assignments. we got a letter from a high school student in florida who said here's what she does to complete your assignment that would require internet access. she drives to her local library at night after it is closed, and sits in the parking lot where she can get wi-fi hookup. but that's not a good answer the digital divide is a good issue and smart government action can help drive universal access. this is what drove the fcc last year to adopt a once in a generation comprehensive overhaul of the $4.5 billion a year universal service fund. we transformed it from a telephone focused program and one at that, too inefficient program focus on universal broadband. so these pillars and priorities not only guide our policy work in the united states. they guide our international engagement in the i.t. sector. and they have in the past, historically. in ways that it had a profound affect. to explain how, let me take a detour into the arab spring. in egypt last year, when they can shut down the internet, shutdown global service, many asked how are they able to do that. what does it mean they can d
